FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Insurance Waiver Instructions

International students with "F" or "J" visas registered for classes at UNL are required to have health insurance. These students will automatically be enrolled and billed for the University’s student health insurance plan (StudentBlue) during each insurance coverage period based upon enrollment in classes.

International students may apply for a waiver from purchasing the University’s student health insurance plan if they have proof of equivalent health insurance benefits under another plan.

Equivalent health insurance benefits must include:

  1. Unlimited medical benefits.
  2. A policy year deductible no greater than $500.
  3. Medical evacuation and repatriation benefits that match the coverage provided University students through Ascension.
  4. Coverage for each semester when enrolled in class.

When necessary, the University Health Center Insurance Office will verify additional information such as insurance carrier financial rating and United States claims processing contact information. Equivalent health insurance benefit requirements are based upon United States Department of State guidelines.
